The end

Gilmore Again

Well, it's over. All 243 Veganomicon recipes have been made, pictured, and eaten - and I'm so glad it's done. It's amazing how much work it takes to follow a list of recipes as opposed to just making meals on the fly. And it feels great to be able to make whatever I want again! Looking back, I really had no idea what I was getting into.

I sure did learn a lot though. I'm a lot more confident in the kitchen - especially with respect to vegan cooking. I've used pretty much every fruit and vegetable that the grocery store offers, something that I never would have done without a forcing function. I've made tamales and pot pie, chutney and scones. I know that flour can be made from just about anything (from garbanzo beans to millet) and that homemade soy ice cream is light years better than the stuff from the store. I can even make my own nutella!

So I'm really glad that I followed through with Veganomnom. It was a large undertaking, but it was well worth the effort.

    Yayyy! I bought materials for making the chickpea quinoa because of your review, but I have not even made that ONE dish yet. I’ll let you know when I finally get around to doing it. Needless to say, I’m very impressed that you found the time and energy to complete such an undertaking. Congratulations!

    Fantastic project! My boyfriend and I are just starting a much more scaled-down version of “Cooking the Veganomicon,” largely to expand our vegan repertoire and have some fun. We’re going “page by page” but picking and choosing based on the amount of time to prepare (preferably 45 minutes or less) and frankly if we like the ingredients or not. I am sure I’ll “tweak” recipes as I go. The creole stuffed peppers and tofu Florentine are up first! We’ll be consulting your blog I’m certain. 🙂
